Form & Verdict

Beat the fine yardstick Sharjah in a Grade 3 hurdle here in July, which was bordering on a career best; however, a penalty spells danger and especially after disappointing in a Listowel handicap.

Form & Verdict

High-class juvenile last season when placed in two Grade 1s and it was some feat to win the Galway Hurdle as a 4yo, becoming the first of his age group to win that iconic race in more than two decades; that elevated him to a mark of 152, which sets the standard here by some way.

T: W P Mullins

Unraced on heavy going, seems to handle any other; ran well behind high-ranking stablemate Lossiemouth twice last term; justified favouritism in Naas Grade 3 most recently, adding to his Galway Hurdle success two starts earlier; currently well short of stablemate State Man's standard but may still rate higher and has each-way possibilities.
